Outreach Ministries

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’” (Matthew 25:35-36) 

As members of His “universal” Church, Jesus calls us to be concerned for all of humanity. This group sponsors parish programs that attempt to broaden awareness of social justice issues, especially in regard to the Church’s teachings. It also reaches out beyond parish boundaries in works of charity, such as Operation Shoebox, the Christmas Giving Tree, the St. Leo Toy Drive, and Jail Ministry. In addition, there is an Outreach Ministries collection once every 3 months to benefit an organization recommended by the Outreach Ministries Committee. All are welcome to our monthly meetings. 
For more information, contact Bill Tonnis, btonnis@olvisitation.org or Lynn Hensler, LynnHensler@yahoo.com or 941-1881.
